Tui Na massage
with Réflexologie - Mariel Pasquier
Tui Na is an energetic massage that is part of the 5 branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
Tui Na massage differs from Western massage techniques, above all because of the energy concept on which it is based (harmonization of Qi), but also because of the multiplicity of types of manipulations.
Indeed, the practitioner uses a wide variety of techniques varying according to the areas to be treated, the type of imbalance, the age and the constitution of the individual. The therapist therefore relies on more than 300 different manipulations, rigorously classified according to their form, their strength and their function. He usually performs them with his upper limbs (fingers, palm, hand, wrist, forearm or elbow), but sometimes he uses his knees, feet, or even his skull. According to our Western criteria, the Tui Na would be classified in the category of rather dynamic massages.
